It doesn't have to be understood in an academic way. To me, that's a cool painting just because I like looking at it. As for why I like looking at it, that's where all the theory and explanations come in. The colors, the arrangement of shapes and lines, etc etc all work together as a visual object. When I look at this visual object, I like it. I find it interesting to look at, and I want to look at it more, and look at it more closely. It makes me feel a certain kind of way.
That's all modern/contemporary art (or art from any time period) has to be, really. Just something that, when you experience it, it makes you feel a certain type of way and makes you want to explore your feelings for it further.
